International Success Story

Remember my doilies? Sure you do! Well I delivered most of my existing stock over to Nelly's Treasures in Cardiff Fashion Quarter this week. Where apparently they are being admired by one and all! Does this mean that I can officially say my work sells in two countries now?! It definitely means I can start working on all new stock... Awww yisssss!

He's A Sketchy Looking Tom

In my continuing quest to become a middling to good artist I attended a 'How To Sketch Animals Real Good' class on Saturday. We were allowed to draw any animal we liked; the obvious choice was my cat so that's who I drew! Here's a picture of him for reference: Halloween Cat N'awwww. Here's what I drew: Scarifying! Intense. My art teacher said it had a mysterious cat expression and was 'terrifying', which I took in the only way I could (a compliment); it is kind of creepily just slightly out of proportion and odd. Still an improvement my stick lion. This post was written under the influence of The Victorian English Gentlemens Club


Hola! I'm still slogging away at the art classes; we just started a new unit which is all about ourlovelyselves and last night's lesson was on screenprinting, so I thought I'd share my work since I loooved it! Regular readers might have picked up on my love of all things 60s, Pop Art and psychedelic; I decided to base my print around that theme and chose Our George as my subject! Our George Aaand here's the result: A Hard Day's Bright Bad Trip Since I'm pretty much a beginner at screenprinting they didn't turn out perfect, but I quite like the imperfections because they are interesting and sort of melty-like. You have to have mega strong arms and big piano hands to be a really great screenprinter; which is why I never want to get on the wrong side of Helen at Nelly's Treasures !
